This is an anonymous account of the Boston Massacre, dated March 1770.


This is John Hancock’s 1774 Oration about the Boston Massacre, dated March 5, 1774.


The next three are actual legislation that was passed leading up to the revolution.  Considered in the context of the Boston Massacre, and everything else we’ve been studying, it seems less and less surprising that these acts led to an uprising.

The Declaratory Act of March 18, 1766


The Townshend Act of July 2, 1767


The Boston Non-Importation Agreement of August 1, 1768
